Review: Kanebo Kate Mineral UV Gel Base


Link
Product Info from KATE:
An advanced UV protection mineral makeup base that protects skin from dryness and UV rays, and keeps it beautiful with just a single application. A clear gel that works as a sunscreen and does not whiten the skin.

* Double-effect mineral powder (skin protection and visible pore coverage)
* Multiple moisturising ingredients (olive oil, almond oil, jojoba oil)
* Paraben (preservative) free
* Ultra-violet absorber
* Fragrance-free



RETAIL PRICE: Php 720.00

WEIGHT: 25 gramsLink
SHADES : Available in only 1 shade.

PROS:
* watery, non-sticky texture that is easily absorbed
* easy to spread
* unscented - no strong sunblock/sunscreen smell

* high spf of 32
PA++
* no allergies

* feels light on the skin



CONS:
* some won't like the dewy finish (when used alone).


TIPS:
Use after skincare before applying foundation.


I RECOMMEND THIS TO:
Those who are looking for a lightweight, non-sticky sunscreen or makeup base.


OVERALL:
This is perfect for me coz I don't like the strong fragrance and sticky feeling I get from wearing sunblocks and suncreens.

I like that this primer does not give that ultra silicone look. It seems as if it moisturizes the skin as well! Thanks for the review Khymmbabe!

I am also trying this out, like ko na walang scent siya and at times, I don't look for that Siliconey feel!
